    Default How old were you when your first was born?

    Are women waiting longer to start families? Just curious. My daughter doesn't want to try til she's 30.
    Love seeketh not itself to please,
    Nor for itself hath any care,
    But for another gives its ease,
    And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.

    26 with my first, my one brother was 25 with his first and we were BY FAR the oldest first time parents in my fam, most were teen parents so I have been told my family members, that if I want another it should be NOW because I am getting TOO OLD to have another ( I will be 29 in March).

    Yes I think for the most part ppl are waiting longer to have kids.

    I was 25 when I got pregnant with my first and 26 when I delivered. I plan on having number two before my 30th birthday. I want to be done having babies before I am 30.

    I was 18. If you look at the statistics women are waiting longer to have babies though.

    30 with my first. Hoping for a second before 35 or DS will be an only child. Although I wouldn't say we intentionally waited until 30 to have a child, I think we are a lot better off since we did have a child later. It allowed us to become financially secure, settle down and know we could provide for our children in the way they deserve.
